Not a lot of movement was seen in the power rankings this week. Mainly, Faze and Optic Gaming switched positions at the top of the list, with Faze taking the lead. They dominated at UMG Dallas and are continuing to do well in online play. A change of heart puts Faze ahead, though there was not a lot of action in the Pro League. Can another reversal occur this weekend after Gfinity?
Also of note, though not shown in the rankings, is Epsilon's first win in the MLG Pro League. They defeated TCM Gaming, but both teams have a combined win count of 3. They only retain a high power ranking due to their performances on LAN.
Though Rise Nation sits at the bottom of the list, their roster, which includes recent pickups Apathy and Burnsoff, may turn Rise into a contender. Watch for movement in the rankings next week if they compete at a high level at Gfinity and in the Pro League.
